The Fifth Amendment

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

What the Fifth Amendment Means

The Fifth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States essentially states that a defendant is protected from a second trial once a “not guilty” verdict has been issued. The defendant is also given the right to justice and to not be proven guilty without due process of law. The Fifth Amendment addresses self-incrimination.
